    PPO 2009 Mock Draft Contest!

    Welcome to the 2009 Mock Draft Contest for Purplepride.

    Since so many members put one together anyway, I thought it would be interesting to make a little contest out of it. Here's how it will work:

    1. Assign a player to each pick in the first round. This contest won't take into account who drafts a player, just when he is drafted.

    2. Give each of your choices a margin of error (+/-). You will score points if your player is picked within that margin of error.
    • [li]+/- 0 = 11 points[/li]
      [li]+/- 1 = 9 points[/li]
      [li]+/- 2 = 7 points[/li]
      [li]+/- 3 = 5 points[/li]
      [li]+/- 4 = 3 points[/li]
      [li]+/- 5 = 1 point[/li]


    For example, if marstc09 picks Alphonso Smith to go at 22, with a +/- of 0, and someone grabs him at 21, he gets 0 points for that pick. If he had given Smith a +/- of 3, he would have gotten 5 points for that pick.

    3. Tiebreaker goes to the person with the most correct +/- 0 picks (and then +/- 1 picks ... and so on. I'm going to reward the person that has the guts to zero in on their picks.)

    4. Players picked in the 2nd round get you no points, even if they're picked within the margin of error you selected.

    The winner gets bragging rights over the rest of PPO, plus either a draft champion sig (created by me) or a draft champion title (exact wording is as yet to be determined - I'm open to suggestions).

    Please make your submissions in this thread, in a format similar to the one I've posted below. I have an Arthritis Walk the day of the draft, and a bunch of folks coming over to my house afterward, so I won't have the results out that day, but I'll get them out as soon as I can.

    The draft is on the 25th, so all entries have to be in by Friday, the 24th. (Central time zone)

    Submission format (you can quote this post to get the table formatting):
    Pick # Player Position School +/-
    1 Player_1 Position_1 School_1 +/-_1
    2 Player_2 Position_2 School_2 +/-_2
    3 Player_3 Position_3 School_3 +/-_3
    4 Player_4 Position_4 School_4 +/-_4
    5 Player_5 Position_5 School_5 +/-_5
    6 Player_6 Position_6 School_6 +/-_6
    7 Player_7 Position_7 School_7 +/-_7
    8 Player_8 Position_8 School_8 +/-_8

    You should have submission due date too.

    If you win, I'll see if I can photoshop a mullet on Mel Kiper Jr, and you can make that your new avatar.

    How about a trophy with Mel Kiper Jr.'s hair on it?

    That would be quite an honor.
